Apostate Englishman: Grey Owl the Writer and the Myths – Albert Braz. (Manitoba University Press, Sept 18, 2015).
In the 1930s Grey Owl was considered the foremost conservationist and nature writer in the world. He owed his fame largely to his four internationally bestselling books, which he supported with a series of extremely popular illustrated lectures across North America and Great Britain. His reputation was transformed radically, however, after he died in April 1938, and it was revealed that he was not of mixed Scottish-Apache ancestry, as he had often claimed, but in fact an Englishman named Archie Belaney.
Albert Braz is an Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Alberta. Dr. Braz is on the Advisory Editorial Board of the InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies.
